3 month Accommodation in Sydney

Hi,

Travelling to Oz in September, flying into Sydney planning to stay there for 3 months.. preferably by the beach!

Any advice on general living costs.. rent and bills ect.. ideally I would share living with other travelers.. also any good links for sorting living plans out over the net before arrival?

Thanks!

James.

Yeah - if you are here for 3 months only, accommodation may be really expensive. My suggestion is to try websites like Gumtree in order to find some accommodation offers (shared accommodation). I would expect that you pay $150 - $200 per week for shared accommodation and it is likely to include all the bills. Food - $50 - $100 per week. Public transport - another $50 per week.

Thanks Dexter!

I will be working during those months hopefully, thanks for the info.. I might do hostels for first few weeks, do the costs vary?

What can traveller jobs pay per week? Fruit picking, office work ect.?

Thanks much appreciated.

Jobs can pay anywhere from $10-25 per hour. Highest usually the "nightlife " industry, pubs and nightclubs. Hospitality is the lowest. Rural and fruit picking pays well, around $20ish

Hi,

I'm moving to Sydney from the USA Nov 1st and plan to stay for 3 months. I was just curious if you found anywhere good to stay and whether or not you were able to set up a jo before your arrival

Hi,

I stayed in Bondi for 2 weeks in a hostel.. Which is expensive.. but it's right on the beach.. Saw the City and did done sightseeing..
I did find a few apartments.. Plenty on Gumtree..
I've got a farm job now.. but I would return to Sydney to live for sure..
Own bedroom in Eastern suburbs would be around 220-250 a week..

Cheapest hostel to live in would be Balmain Backpackers although it isn't by the beach. But because the cost was so low I had extra money to spend on day trips when I wasn't working. I lived there for 3 months and there are quite a few people living there who work also so they are curteous of others!
Also check out gumtree for other places to stay short term and for jobs.
